Lystfiskeri ved Jørbæk Strand

Ærø is an island surrounded by excellent fishing waters. The island is just 30 km long and 9 km at its widest point, but can still boast about 80 km of coastline and sea trout can be caught anywhere of the island.

Within 15 minutes you can move from one fishing spot to another with completely different wind and water conditions.

If the wind is off in one place, you can quickly find a different spot with shelter and clear water somewhere else on the island.

As there is good access to the coast all around the island, it is easy to find a good, secluded spot to fish from, whether you are into fly fishing or spin fishing.
